■%RASH OF THE United Airlines jet while com-
ing in to Chicago's Midway Airport, killing
45 persons, was certainly a major news story.
But there was a sidelight to the crash almost
as newsworthy as the crash itself!
ISfllM RADIO, AN ALL news station, repeated
wW the story of the crash every 15 to 20 min-
utes. . .and just as often it also repurti'd that
one of the women killed m the crash. Dorothy
Hunt, was carrying $10,000 in cash in her purse!
and WHO WAS Dorothy Hunt? She was the
wife nt K Howard Hunt who was indicted
in the Watergate affair!
We wiah ex ee new a medu aad been 45 diligent
in reporting this very interesting sidelight.
Chicago police are trying to determine if this
was part of the secret Nixon cash campaign funds
which were tied in to Watergate.
| AST WEEK WE INCLUDED three headlines ap-
k pearing since Nov. 7 which were bad news for
And now, the following item appeared Dec. 11 in
the Wall Street Journal:
“Revenue sharing checks for suburbs in many
cases were larger than anticipated, and ‘the big-
gest losers are the rural areas,’ urban analysis
The item goes on to say that mosi rural local-
ities are planning to use the government handout
for such thing; as schools, police, or similar func-
tnxis. Meanwhile, Pontiac, Mich., plans to sjiend
more than 40 per cent of its $4.6 million revenue
share on a professional s|*orts stadium!
How does that grab you?
IAIE WERE AT FLOYDADA one night last week
™ to attend a meeting called for the purpose
of considering the consolidation of Floyd County
Ijw enforcement agencies.
In other words, they are considering the consoli-
dation of the sheriff's and police departments at
Floydada and Lockney.
Speakers were the 'hciiff and county judge
from Haideman County which has already consoli-
dated the Hardeman sheriff's department and the
Quanali |K)lice departm nt. This is a pilot program
and apparently is not only successful and economi-
cal but is highly popular with both the officers
and the public.
Not nly (l<x-s it elunina'.c duplication of effort
but it also eliminates petty jealousies and friction.
In addition, there are state funds available for
those who upgrade their law enforcement agencies
by this method.
pY NO RULE OF LOGIC can we justify the
D maintenance of two jails here in Tulia.
I'nder the consolidation program, the sheriff
remains the chief law enforcement officer of the
county since he is the only elected law enforcement
ofli.ec City police officers heroine deputy sheriffs.
In Hardeman County, a |x>luy board is composed
of the county ludge, a county commissioner, the
mayor of (juanah and a city alderman. The sheriff
preferred not to serve on the board.
Quanah bears 40 |xv cent of the cost and Harde-
man County. HO |xt cent. The county, of course,
receive' all fine money since the city court is
■HE COST OF LAW enforcement is up and
I will continue to increase, due in part to court
decisions and federal and slate regulations, laxal
uni’s are having to improve their jail facilities,
111 >re pa|ier work is required which means more
office help, communications is be oming more so-
phisticated and expensive, more training is required
for law officers, it is costing more to get good
Much of this is a result of the demands of
"the great silent majority" and others to wipe
out crime, to make the streets safe, etc. etc.
The government answe.s back that if we want
crime diminished, we are going to have to foot
^%ITIES AS WELL AS counties are going to have
to upgrade their law enforcement facilities.
Some are even predicting that the time is coming
when law enforcement officers will be required
to have college degrees.
In view of things to come, if not already
here, the cost of local government is going to
increase. Our demands for services aren't going
to decrease, it anything, they are going to increase.
We are likely to want better iaw enforcement,
not worse, better garbage collection, not worse.
Tiat being the case, we are going to have
to eliminate waste and duplication! We are going
to have to cut out the fat in those places where
it can be cut while maintaining the same service.
IN THE FAST, such issues as law enforcement
I consolidation, tax collection consolidation, school
consolidation, oven c untv consolidation have been
nothing more than conversation pieces, debate sub-
je,ts. Everybody talked about them, aligned himself
on one side or the other, but that was all. No
one seriously consider'd action.
But we ha\" reached the stage where action
can no longer be delayed.
The tune is at hand where we are faced with
increasing taxes to supp 'rt services we are now
receiving, ke-ping taxes as they are but reducing
services we are now receiving, or perhaps increas-
ing efficiency bv eliminating the fat and maintaining
present service without drastically increasing taxes.
VHIS IS AN ISSUE to he decided by the PEOPLE!
I It is NOT a question to be decided by city
and county officials. We the people pay the bills,
not th" officials.
W K are the one' to be served!
We have no reason to believe that either the
rty or county oiticials would be interested in any-
thing Out what's go d for the people -- economy

Scabies Control Program Is Castigated
Indignation at the Scabies Eradi-
cation Program and the state's
Animal Health Commission, partic-
ularly its chairman. Dr H. ()
Sibley, peaked Thursday night
when ranchers and other cattlemen
from seven area towns braved
almost impassable roads to attend
the last in a series of public
hearings called by the Texas House
Interim Study Committee which
is investigating the unpopular pro-
The hearing, conducted by Rep-
resentative Bryan Puff of Amarillo,
chairman of the committee, was
held in the Willie Room of Swi-
sher Electric Cooperative.
Other members of the commit-
tee, scheduled to appear, were
detained by the weather and per-
sonal reasons. Representative Pete
Laney of Hale Center was unable
to attend. His infant s n was buried
Ranchers, feedtot operators and
sales ring managers all testified
that the requirement that animals
be dipped for scabies provent ion
is resitting in high mortality rates,
that th • dipping of healthy animals
is injuring their health and is
resulting in the death of numer-
ous calves. It was |xiinted out
that chemicals used to dip the
animals carry the warning that
they are not to be used on young
calves — nevertheless, the state
program requires it if the calves
are to be moved.
Other objections were that many
buyers hesitate to purchase dtp|ied
animals and that the program is
much too drastic to control the
rare incidence of scabies, some-
thing like shooting a flea with
Cost of the dipping, including
travel and labor, averaging per-
haps $1.50 per animal, was not
listed as a major objection.
Loss of otherwise healthy ani-
mals has been especially high this
fall as a result of dipping ani-
mals in below freezing tempera-
Hoyet Hurnam manager of Tul-
ia Livestock Auction Co., testified
that many baby calves had died
as a result of spraying.
J a m e s R. McCasland, young
Randall County rancher, said that
the eradication program was ser-
iously affecting his derations and
costing him sales to people who
objected to the dipping of healthy
Ken Cook, Swisher County Ex-
tension Agent, presented the pri-
mary and secondary costs of dip-
Sam Kirk, manager of Prairie
Cattle Co, said that the state
program is obsolete arid needs
to be revised.
The group present were cool
to the suggestion that the Animal
Health Commission s regulations
be expanded to include spray dip-
ping which is said to be effect-
ti'.e; however, m o s t preferred

Walter Graham, owner of Happy
Hereford Ranch west of Happy,
reported strong objection to dip-
ped cattle by buyers in the 43
states and f ar ! leign n.untiles
who have been buying his bleed
cattle Graham, a lifelong cattle-
man, testified that he has nevr
seen an animal with scabies. He
termed the pieent program both
unlair and ineffective.
Most of the ran hers testdierl
that due to the fear of scabies,
no cattleman would neglect to take
proper action immediately when-
ever a threat of the disc 1 e appe ir-
ed. Most present felt that the
cattle owner, not the st de, should
take care of the problem. Repre-
sentative P ff replied th it the pro-
